LAS VEGAS -- In a News 3 investigation that shows "No Way to Drive." There are new concerns about Nevada’s hands-free driving law and the stealth texters that law is creating.

News 3 anchor Marie Mortera leads this investigation.

Mortera learned theat those who refuse to put the phone down are trying to get away in sneaky ways -- trying to discreetly hide their phone.

However, authorities say that amplifies the distraction and the dangers, as Mortera found out with a News 3 experiment.

In Part 2 of a News 3 investigation-“No Way to Drive.” News 3 crews catch distracted drivers in a school zone of all places. So is Nevada's hands-free law working as designed? As Crime Tracker 3's Marie Mortera reports, many, including at least one legislator, say no.
